The Hungry Giant

I was rushing to school the other day, with my uniform sealed in a plastic garment bag because the weather was incredibly hard on us. Hey, I wanted to make a good first impression. There were no signs that a public vehicle going to my destination was available outside of the place where I’m staying, so I had to take the long way and commute twice.

Because I’m usually lucky with averting tardiness, I arrived on time, only to be greeted by a deserted school and a padlocked main door. It was 30 minutes before class should start and there I was, trying my best not to look like a fool for not checking any notifications before I left. Classes were cancelled. The rain has apparently morphed into proportions fit for a typhoon, but strangely enough, it couldn’t be considered a typhoon – but the numbers don’t lie; the devastation…

Velociriot!

Harry Potter turned 32 on Tuesday. Does that make you feel old? That’s okay. I feel old, too, and I’m ten years younger than our beloved boy who lived. J.K. Rowling, the woman behind his creation, turned 47 on Tuesday. So in honor of their birthdays (and our first Thirsty Thursday, where we bring you delicious foods and drinks that you just have to try), it seems appropriate to toss back a butterbeer or two and maybe enjoy some cauldron cakes, right?

One of my favorite blogs, Pastry Affair, did a whole series of posts last summer detailing how to make some favorite treats from the Harry Potter series. You can learn how to make Honeydukes treats and butterbeer cupcakes, as well as cauldron cakes and, of course, butterbeer. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a decent cook but not a good baker — I’m too impatient…

The Not So Super Mama


Yes, you read right.  3 days!  I LOVE pickles.  My last pregnancy I ate an entire jar of pickles and a pint of ice cream for dinner on more than one occasion.  When they are small and crisp and a bit of spice to them- WOW!  But, I never thought of making them myself.  It seemed too fussy, and I wasn’t experienced in canning.  Then I saw this recipe on www.frugallysustainable.com and thought I would give it a try.  I am so glad I did.  What a hit!

I don’t have much of a garden, we’ve had such a mild summer here.  So I bought some pickling cucumbers at the farmers market last weekend.  The smallest ones I could find, and just enough for one quart size jar.  It was hard to wait three days to try them, but it was worth it, and now that I’ve almost finished this…

Who’s out there listening and reading it would be nice to get a comment more often than once a century. I like reading your blogs and seeing what’s going on in the world.  Recipes opinions how to do things etc. Well talk to me let me know what you think about peach ketchup or apple onion chutney because I’ve tried them and have recipes for them. Talk to me about history. A nation that doesn’t study and learn from history is doomed to repeat and make the same mistakes and failures of history. We have some of the most miserable corrupt leaders in history are you blindly following them off the cliff to your own and your future generations destruction. The world is what we make it our future and history we make it positive or negative good or evil. What are your wants and needs as far as foods,clothes etc. Has anyone besides me or a few had the epiphany to build many  desalinization plants and pipelines and aquifers into the interior of our country to alleviate drought conditions. We have the fuel resources to become energy independent if we are willing to overcome the fools who continue to sabotage their development on facecious phony environmental concerns.We can build employment and support those entreprenuers operating small and home businesses by supporting them and doing business with them. Small cottage businesses may be the way to go for the future in many instances. We don’t have to starve we can be self sufficient we don’t need some bureaucrat looking over our shoulder and breathing down our neck dictating how we should live our lives or make our living. There is room for both the corporation and small entreprenuer to succeed in America in fact they should compliment each other it allows for decentralization and mutual benefit to both. I invite you to come and visit and communicate and build many great friendships and relationships the New America built can be greater than the old or worse. God and Country America Forever !!!
